Thomas Bachexpressed his confidence that these technologies will be more widely used in other events, and Chinese science and technology will contribute even more to the Olympic movement in the future.


Advanced technology has propelled China Media Corporation to the forefront of the industry 

China Media Corporation is one of the most promising broadcasters in the world, says Olympic Broadcasting Service CEO Yannis Exarchos. The thing is that the Media Corporation successfully introduces new technologies into its work, which became obvious during the Olympic Games. Broadcasts were conducted using ultra-high definition technologies on ultra-modern equipment. Thanks to this, the audience had the effect of being at the competition. Showing the World Games in ultra-clear resolution was the goal of the China Media Corporation.

The camera approaches the athletes and captures all their movements.


Yannis Exarchos, Director General of the Olympic Broadcasting Service:

“The new Gepard system captures even very fast movements brilliantly. I think that's one of the reasons why the Games were so interesting to watch."

Exarchos also noted that the China Media Corporation and the Olympic Broadcasting Service share the same goals and visions and their collaboration will continue even after these iconic Winter Olympics.

Beijing achieves carbon neutrality at the Olympic Games 
< br> The Beijing Winter Olympics were the first ever carbon-neutral World competition. All sports facilities are environmentally friendly and operate using energy only from "green sources". This was stated by the head of the Academy of Environmental Planning under the Ministry of Ecology and Environment of China Wang Jinnan. Thus, the Chinese government has fulfilled its promise to host a greener Olympic Games. In particular, for some competitions it was decided to use old facilities instead of building new ones.


After the necessary repairs, the competition was hosted by the Bird's Nest stadium, the Water Cube and Ukeson sports centers. This reduced the environmental impact that active construction would have caused. The National Ice Skating Palace, or Ice Ribbon, is the first ever Winter Olympics to use carbon dioxide as its coolant, with a near-zero carbon footprint.

Buses were used to service the Olympics and hydrogen powered shuttles. They made up 85% of all vehicles at the Games. 

Wang Jinnan also revealed that China has fulfilled its commitment to hosting a carbon neutral Games through intensive use of solar and wind energy, active reforestation and changes in agricultural practices to reduce greenhouse gas concentrations.


In general, over the past five years, China's ecology and environment have improved significantly. From 2017 to 2021, the concentration of fine particulate matter in the air of the cities of China decreased by 25%. The number of days with excellent air quality increased by 5%, while the number of days with heavy pollution decreased by almost 40%.


During this time, the share of coal in China's energy consumption has decreased to about 56%, and the share clean energy increased to 25%. China ranks first in the world in photovoltaic, wind and power generation, as well as in the production and sales of vehicles powered by alternative energy sources.


By 2020 China's carbon dioxide emissions have fallen significantly in 2018, exceeding the country's stated emissions reduction commitments. China is also one of the countries with the highest rate of energy intensity reduction per plan.


Military skill competition held in the Tibetan city of Shigatse

The military unit of the Shigatse military district of the Tibetan military command held a military competition skill. The first discipline is a three-kilometer cross with weapons and in full uniform at an altitude of more than 4000 meters above sea level. The soldiers experienced a lack of oxygen and chills, but this did not soften the strict judging team, which monitored the observance of all the rules by the participants.


After the cross-country, the servicemen competed in flips on the horizontal bar. This exercise showed strength, flexibility and coordination. The next stages of the competition were grenade throwing, firing from military weapons, reading maps of the area and setting up tents in conditions as close as possible to combat. To achieve a good team result, a clear division of tasks was required.


Sun Zhixian, commander of the motor transport corps of the military unit:

“Now we will focus on the weak points in our training. We will solve problems and motivate soldiers for constant training in order to comprehensively improve the combat competence of our troops.”



The latest Chinese developments were shown at the Games

The Beijing Winter Olympics is not only an international sports festival that took place against the backdrop of the COVID-19 pandemic. 19, but also a demonstration site for high-tech developments in China.


The ribbon-shaped Winter Games torch, called the "Flying" torch, is the world's first hydrogen-fueled Olympic torch. When it was created, new materials were used that guarantee combustion in all weather conditions. All Beijing Olympic torches were 3D printed.


Chen Dayong, Head of Metal Materials Company:

“With the help of 3D printers, we were able to produce many complex parts at the same time. Thanks to this, the aesthetic design of the Olympic torch is combined with its functions.”


The attention of viewers and experts was attracted by another high-tech product that was first used in Beijing - photovoltaic glass for generating electricity, which reduces carbon emissions to almost zero.


Hu Huai, Deputy Director of Power Company, Zhongshan:

< i> “This photovoltaic system complex generates about 500 thousand kilowatt-hours of electricity per year, which is equal to saving 200 tons of standard coal and reducing carbon dioxide emissions by 480 tons per year. It provides round-the-clock ice production at the National Skating Palace.” 


The National Speed Skating Palace, or Ice Ribbon, is the only object for competitions on ice, which was built specifically for the Beijing Winter Olympics. It covers an area of about 80,000 square meters and can accommodate 12,000 spectators. During the Olympic Games, speed skating competitions were held here, at which 14 sets of medals were played.

The construction of the Asian Football Cup stadium is being completed in Xiamen 

Xiamen Egret Stadium almost completed! Workers have finished installing the steel structures of the roof of the sports facility. In 2023, the Asian Football Cup will be held here. More than 8.5 billion yuan (more than a billion US dollars) has already been invested in the new football ground. The stadium covers about 180,000 square meters and can accommodate more than 60,000 spectators.

A rare mirage was filmed in Xinjiang

Beautiful A natural phenomenon - a mirage - was seen by locals and tourists in the Kumtag Desert in northwest China. The combination of majestic yellow sands and blue skies has always attracted the attention of photographers, but recently the usual landscape has changed. Small puddles formed above the sand, and after a while they turned into a lake, on the surface of which aquatic plants became visible. A little later, dunes appeared near the lake.


Mirage is an optical phenomenon in which light rays penetrate into layers of air of different density, reflect from them and form an image of distant objects.


The Mirage appeared more than once in the Kumtag Desert, usually it happened in the warm season from May to October. Recent snowfall, clear skies and high visibility contributed to the appearance of this February fantastic landscape, about 20 kilometers long.< br>
